usually, 6000k-8000k, 35w is good, 55w is even better, and brighter. ddmtuning is the way to go!

4300k is supposed to be pure white but it always comes out a little turquoise

5000k is supposed to be white with a little bit of blue, but it looks pretty white

6000k is white/blue

8000k is bluish purplish white

Everyone says 4300k is the best for driving, if you're going for looks then you can go with one of the bluer tones and still have plenty of light.

On the subject- I'm going to see how it is after I open my headlights and clean the projector lens, but will I see a significant improvement if I go to 55w over 35w?

One of my 55W 5000K DDM tuning HID's blew out. Probably not best for daily driving. They are bright as hell though. I have 4300K 35W on my FC, they are OEM color. They are yellow with a tint of turquoise when warming up.
